Specific states also require franchise companies to register their franchise opportunity and file their Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) with state examiners prior to offering franchise opportunities to residents in that state. These registration states have examiners review a franchisor's FDD to ensure it satisfies state regulatory requirements.
